2016 Audi A6 vs. 2016 Lexus IS 350 Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Due to its greater rear head- and legroom, backseat passengers will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Audi A6 than the Lexus IS 350. The Lexus IS 350 will be a favorite with taller drivers due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Audi A6.

Convenience
With the Audi A6 you will definitely be making fewer stops at the gas station than with the Lexus IS 350, due to its larger tank size and better fuel economy.

Cost
There are a lot of factors to consider when calculating the overall cost of a vehicle. The main consideration is Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP). The Audi A6 is somewhat more expensive than the Lexus IS 350. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. In this case, the Audi A6 will cost less to deliver to the dealership than the Lexus IS 350.

Dimensions
Since the Audi A6 is much wider than the Lexus IS 350, finding a wide enough spot in a parking lot may be a bit more challenging. If you go with the Audi A6, you may be circling the block looking for a space large enough to park more often than with the Lexus IS 350.

Drivetrain
With similar torque, the Audi A6 and the Lexus IS 350 do an equal job of transmitting their engine's power to their wheels.

Handling
The Audi A6 has a significantly larger turning radius than the Lexus IS 350, making it much more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
The Audi A6 has less horsepower than the Lexus IS 350, so it will probably be somewhat slower.

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the Audi A6 and the Lexus IS 350. You'll be able to fit about the same amount of groceries into the Audi A6 as you will in the Lexus IS 350.

Warranty
The Audi A6 comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Lexus IS 350.
